 Not surprising given that most of the manufacturers using Android chose it because it was the cheapest option for getting a mobile OS with functionality similar to what Apple was offering and not out of some altruistic belief in "open" or understanding of giving back when you get something.  For now, Android is an important part of Google's core business (data collection and advertising) in the mobile device space.  However, should some major manufacturers like Samsung...
 Yup, that post pretty much reads like the Gizmodo article linked above.  As he said "sour grapes hold no weight in court".  They signed a bad contract out of desperation and inevitably ended up on the losing side. As to the original point: even if Beats never had the in-house audio engineering chops, they certainly have access to it now via Apple.  Apple essentially bought a brand with a dedicated following that I doubt they themselves would be able to build.  Worth 3B?...
Are you being paid to generate negative comments about Apple watch or something?  I think that's a dozen or so similar comments I've read in the past couple of days.  You don't like it, we get it, get over it and stop derailing unrelated threads. As for the topic at hand, as someone else stated, it sounds like sour grapes from Mr. Lee because he sold his stake in Beats before the Apple acquisition.  Monster makes overpriced cables that are literally forced upon you by...
Or just join the AllSeen Alliance and make use of/contribute to the pool of existing open technologies there.
 Open is only well-intentioned in academia.  As soon as a corporation latches on to the concept, the intention is almost always to get free/cheap labour (shortcut product development time) and/or to use it as a marketing strategy.  The ruse is that their intentions are to make everything interoperable, and some of the people working for that company may actually believe that and work in that direction for a while.  But when push comes to shove, they'll divert resources...
Good to hear that the different divisions of the VAG finally started working with each other.
Straw man.  I'm talking basic things like child labour (pick a reasonable age), maximum number of hours per week (pick a reasonable number), no exposure to hazardous materials/chemicals, etc.  Surely we can agree on basic humane conditions like that even if we don't go so far as to mandate contentious things like amount of sick days/vacation time, minimum wage (which would have to depend on the area of the world) and whatnot.
 I'd argue that it is everyone's responsibility (as much as possible) to be knowledgeable about the things they purchase and what goes into making them.  Many people already do this for the content of their food (fat, salt, etc) so why not for the working conditions and materials used to create the products they buy?  Every action (no matter how small) contributes to the state of the world.  The more knowledgeable we are, the more we can do to stop the people who are...
If I wanted to hear about all the problems people are having with iOS 8, I'd head over to the Apple support forums or hang around my local Apple Store.  I was hoping there'd be some people talking about their experiences with the latest iteration of WatchKit in the Xcode 6.2 preview.  But I guess I'll have to head over to the Apple developer forums for that.
I'm trying to figure out what most of these comments have to do with the WatchKit preview in iOS 8.2?
